Cora received Christ at a young age. She was a faithful and dedicated member of Full Gospel Holy Temple Church in Dallas, TX. She served for approximately forty years, touching the lives of numerous people through consistent prayers and loving encouragement.
In 2016, Cora moved to Richmond, Virginia to be closer to her son Michael. Although she was not able to physically attend church service, she never lost sight of Jesus Christ. She encouraged herself by speaking to herself in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in her heart to the Lord. She always read her Bible, listened to CD’s, and read Christian books given to her by her daughter –in- law. She continued to build herself up in the faith and remained faithful to God.
She had nine brothers and sisters, six have preceded her in death; Arthar Edwards Jr., Willie James Edwards, Paul Edwards, King Edwards, Georgie Ruth Edwards Smith and Nettie Henderson.
